    very noice. just wondering why not more people opt for the three piece trees, especially when you've been to the store yourself.

    I received a similar pair on the F last recently and can try and post up pics tonight if you are interested. They are an antique cognac pair and I absolutely love them. Haven't worn them yet though. :embar:

    Exactly my thoughts when I saw it [​IMG]
    That would be great man, much appreciated [​IMG]

    I have the U-cap in oxblood in the F last so wanted a bit of variety to my shoe rotation. Any reason why I should go with F rather then the U last for this particular design?

    Three piece trees were not offered. Frankly, the sales manager who we first dealt with was very good, but the female associates who were there when I picked up the shoes (after having toe taps installed) were not that helpful... Pulled out the shoes, threw in extra laces, and on my way whether I had any comments or questions or not....

    This balmoral is beautiful...but I wouldn't not do it in a suede or different color upper. I would keep it the same throughout and add steel eyelets

    But they still may ask you to pay the difference between Hungary VAT (19%) and Sweeden VAT (25%) because this is not deal between individuals.
